Depending on your setup, your music can either be delivered by a record label or distributor. A distributor will handle the licensing, distribution, and royalty payments associated with your release; they usually charge for their services, so it’s worth doing some research to find out which will be the best fit. If you’re looking for a place to start, check out our list ofpreferred and recommend distributors.
If you want to submit a track for playlist consideration, but it’s from your first release on Spotify, it’s important to make sure that you find a distributor that allows you to select a release date that’s at least one week in the future. That should give you enough time to claim your artist profile and get your track submitted.
